Inquiry. - Poem by guy lipmore

Oh'Iraq inquiry, What is it for?
Sheer publicity, Was it a‘legal war'?
Costing millions of pounds, bloody indecency.
To get answers good it sounds, waste of time and money.
The public were misled, media lies' were fed.
‘Sexed up' dossier, ‘true'they'd say.
‘Forty-five minute launch ability', they'd say insistently.

Resolutions by U.N', they had to stop'Saddam'
Blair and co', play the media show.
They talk of justification, ‘weapons of mass destruction.'
Inspectors on the ground, none ever found!
Death of Dr Kelly, ‘suicide'apparently!

‘Questions' were asked, depth they lacked.
No answers direct, truth was‘select'!
A few did squirm, nothing new to churn.
Odd one on the spot, no great shock.

One of the few highlights, yes best sights.
Of the whole inquiry, one bit of HONESTY.

Some in opposition, venting frustration.
In particular, ex-cabinet minister.
Clair Short, TRUTH and cheers she brought.!

So that was that, the issue of Iraq.
Nothing to be concluded, total truth will be eluded.!
